The Fine 2011 Mordoree, Rose, La Dame Rousse, Tavel


We quickly polished off a few bottles of 2011 Mordoree, La Dame Rouse, Rose, Cotes du Rhone but the 2011 La Dame Rousse, Tavel has been drunk slower.  It too is a large-scaled rose with good complexity but unlike the big and racy Cotes du Rhone the Tavel is young and confident of its future.  In fact I would cellar this Tavel for a year.  If you must try it now then give it several hours in the decanter.  I find that a glass invigorates my palate after drinking red wine.  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2011 Domaine de la Mordoree, Rose, La Dame Rousse, Tavel – $22
Imported by Kysela Pere et Fils.  This wine is a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Cinsault and 10% Clairette sourced from 40-year-old vines.  It is a beautiful medium opacity cherry-ruby color.  There is a medium strength nose of floral fruit, pastilles, and with air there are scents of raspberries.  The mouth follows the nose but shows more structure with a mild creamy mouthfeel, expansive sweet-spiced fruit, understated acidity, and almost gritty sweet spices and a stony tang in the aftertaste.  Robust at first it takes on a sense of breed after a few days.  *** 2013-2015.
